    My Audi A3 20VT Sport Thread

    How it looked when i got it





    Have since bought some Genuine RS4 18'' Alloys and painted them black, done my calipars black with white Audi declays on the front ones, and de-rear wiper'd the rear. Also modified the standard airbox and added a CAI.








    Lots more planned and know where near finished.

    Looking good, personally I think the wheels are a bit too dark, but each to their own, looking forward to the future mods

    I was the same as you, running 18's a 40mm drop is spot on. Still sensible enough to get over the many speed bumps etc.

    Will be interesting to see how the carbon wrap comes out, I've got my A3 T sport booked in on the 7th of October to have the bonnet, roof, and bootlid all professionally wrapped in carbon, costing a small fortune but the guy doing it is faultless so should hopefully look good! Only thing is, the carbon wrap which is being done on my car is a matt carbon (as real carbon fibre is matt) but I'm not sure if its gonna look ok, I'm sure it'll look good, but I may even get it laquered at a later date to give it a gloss finish, is yours a glossy finish?

    My car is in the bodyshop now having a full respray (in a different colour to how it left the factory) and i've ordered a new set of wheels and tyres which should be here in the first week of october, so I will be putting a little build up thread together in the next couple of weeks, so look out for that! and in the meantime I'll be keeping an eye on your build up thread, keep up the good work mate!

    Use a heat gun and a felt squeejee (sp?!) for good results.

    Measure about 20 times and cut once

    you too, pics when yours is finished would be great, i dont know weather to do my wing mirrors or just the black brackets bits too to match the b pillars, also going to do my panel that sits in the rear of the s3 rear bumper, also a cupra R splitter, just dont know what to do to the mirrors, the carbon is weird, its not likeprinted vynil or anything, feels weird too, got a very slight shine very when light goes onto it, you can also see this stuff is actually weaved

    if I was doing it I'd be heating the non sticky side, its only to put some heat into it so you can apply it in fiddly areas a bit easier. It softens it up so its easier to work with

    As for the felt thing...one of these..

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Felt-Squeegee-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Use it to smooth it out and push out airbubbles etc. If you use something hard like a credit card it might damage the surface. Using a felt one will help you to push it onto the panel and over curved surfaces without knackering the vinyl

    You could try wrapping something soft (yellow duster) around a credit card or something rather than buy a felt one...but its your call!.

    just slightly annoyed now, with the faint line, cant see it hardly, will yake day time pics, was thinking of a cheekly little german emblem, the flag, might take your eye from it, bearing in mind first time ive done somthing like this, also hard to find a good cheap source of the carbon in the size you need.
